And don't say in 2009, because I already know that. What I don't know is in what the month or on what day the organizers are planning to hold it on.

The reason for slight bitterness is that I am leading a group of about 15 people to the event (SAP-Berlin Marathon group), and being the guy who is responsible for the design and implementation of the training program, it is a little problematic when you don't actually know when the Grand finale is going to be.

The event is usually held in September, but it has been stated (but not confirmed) that next year it will be held in June. I then stumbled upon another site (World Marathon Majors) that believes the event is to be held on October 11, 2009.

A little frustrating when you are unable to tell anyone WHEN their big event is, and even worse, you cannot lay out a full plan on HOW they are actually going to get to their race.

Thank goodness for the Paris Half Marathon on 8 March 09, an event that has had a date finalized for many months now, and has been accepting registrations for almost 6 weeks already.

This event I can plan for.

If you perhaps have some insider knowledge about this sought after date, I would most indebted to you forever.
